I think she still has to head to Denmark to have her scrubbers fitted. Alf Pollak is still in Odense.

W.B. YEATS arrived back at FSG earlier (looking a little rusty and with that section on the port side where the aft and middle modules join still in primer).  Some pictures on NIFS

No response from IF. I guess they must be happy enough with her performance.

Space will have been allowed for inside the funnel given she was designed with scrubber installation in mind unlike older vessels such as PA.  Thereís a precedent actually - ALF POLLAK had her scrubbers fitted after her trials (also off Bornholm and the Danish coast) at Odense.

It was not touched up before the sea trials
Technically not true.  Someone obviously had the paint out at some stage in the past couple of weeks else the area around the bow doors (and others) would still have primer on them!!

Iím told there is still some commissioning work to do.  Perhaps we might see her in Dublin before the end of the month.  Then there will likely be weeks of trials, crew familiarisation, drills, and inspections.  Fingers crossed she gets in service for Xmas!
